Toyota workers in Durban to strike

Oct 17 2012 07:58

Johannesburg - Workers at the Toyota Boshoku factory in Durban will go on an indefinite strike on Wednesday, their trade union said.

About 480 workers affiliated to the National Union of Metalworkers of SA wanted a R1 500 retention bonus, the union's regional secretary Mbuso Ngubane said.

The factory makes seats and door trims for Toyota vehicles. The Durban Labour Court granted the workers the right to go on a protected strike.

Ngubane said the dispute started in 2009, when the company decided to give only one category of workers, the artisans, and a R1 500 retention bonus. He said the decision was taken outside the bargaining chamber.

Numsa wanted the bonus given to all workers.
